What began as a small art association?originally assembled to organize an exhibit of local art?eventually blossomed into a full-scale museum as its art collection grew. Today, works by world-renowned artists share space with masterpieces by Mississippians in a museum committed to making the visual arts more accessible for the community at large.? The Building: After decades in its original location, the museum was moved to a new space in 2007. A transparent door and entryway enables outsiders to see the visitors inside the space, a play on the museum's mantra to make it a "museum without walls." Permanent Mainstay: The Mississippi Story celebrates art by Mississippians and includes photos by Eudora Welty, works by William Hollingsworth, and a collection of quilts. Don't Miss: 19th-century portraits includes works by British artists Thomas Lawrence and Thomas Sully; works by master artists Picasso, Mir?, Chagall, and Rembrandt; as well as a collection of pre-Columbian artifacts. In the Open Air: Outside the museum, take a stroll through The Art Garden, more than an acre of green space peppered with outdoor art installations and a performance stage. Past Exhibits: Spacious Skies featured 14 painted or drawn landscapes culled from the permanent collections of such artists as John Sloan, Will Henry Rivers, Elaine Galen, as well as the museum's first painting, William P. Silva's The Shower. Pro Tip: At the monthly workshop Look and Learn with Hoot, kids develop the skills for art literacy through an art activity and story time. Special Programs: Almost 30 affiliate museums throughout the state regularly feature artwork from the museum's permanent collection.

Last Call's menu fills nutritionally bankrupt stomachs with moral morsels of flavorful amidst electrifying weekly events such as live music, dart leagues, and karaoke. Ravenous bird watchers can snag a mouthful of in-bone or boneless wings flapping around the restaurant, baptizing them in a culinary cauldron of zesty sauces such as lemon pepper, sweet red chili, and southwest chipotle. The jalapeño burger, topped with jalapeño bacon, diced jalapeños, and cheddar cheese, and served with a choice of side ($7.99), melts oral ice ages. And the shrimp po' boy, breaded butterflied shrimp dressed with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and cocktail sauce ($7.99), acts as a father figure to the orphan sea monkeys swimming aimlessly around your stomach.

Crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber prevail as the Monster X Tour invades the Ocean Center, thrilling all ages in an action-packed motorsports showcase. Bigfoot, the forefather of all station-wagon smashers, leads a fleet of competitive 10,000-pound monster trucks, including Bear Foot and Black Knight, through jaw-dropping races, wheelie contests, and freestyle car composting. Transaurus, a two-story transforming robot that never learned to love, buries his woes by chomping entire cars in his massive jaws while watching reruns of Felicity. Before the show, VIP tickets also grant access to the Pit Party, where fans can have autographs signed by the drivers. During intermission, fans get the opportunity to eschew sea level with a ride inside a monster truck or visit General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and learn its true feelings about excessive hood sliding.
